    This was a good explore with The Shepshed Diamond Back.
    It was not a very big culvert or structurally sound but very nice all the same,
    and a good little find : )

    History

    I could not find history about this culvert so apologies , but we think its Ramsley Brooke that flows
    through the culvert.

    The culvert itself is situated on Doctors Lane so that's what determined the name,
    it starts off as a wide concrete culvert and then converts into a drain with a lot of cracks in it.
    There was a second part to it at the end where it opened up and lead into another
    drain but we could see the end of it and wasn't very far so we didn't proceed.

    That RCP is failing the test of time, the brick drains fair much better than some of this concrete shyte

    Good effort and pics though, keep 'em coming :thumb

    I agree and the brick work in culverts and the colour of them are a lot more beautiful than concrete,
    thanks I defiantly prefer draining :D

    Some huge crumbing sections in the NSWI in Bristol. Wonder if it'll last another 60 years.

    It was stuck in there, it's really not structurally sound,
    The cracks in the concrete were huge.
